Prayer meeting for A K Hangal at Prithvi theatre
The meeting, organised by the Indian People's Theatre Association (IPTA) at Prithvi Theatre, was termed a "celebration of Hangal's life and journey" rather than a condolence meet.
Those present from Bollywood for the meet included Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar, Kabir Bedi, Ila Arun, Anupam Kher, Raj Zutshi, Pawan Malhotra, Rakesh Bedi, Deepti Naval and few others.
Javed Akhtar reminisced how he first met AK Hangal on the sets of the film, 'Bawarchi'. Here Javed Akhtar is seen with Rakesh Bedi and Avatar Gill.
Theatre and TV actor Anjan Srivastav performed a scene from IPTA's longest running play-- 'Shatranj Ke Mohre', in which Hangal had played a role.
